There is no greater tyranny than that which is perpetrated under the shield of the law and in the name of justice. – Charles de Montesquieu. 

Analyze the above quote. You have read the textbook material about the court structure and law and due process. You have watched multiple videos/documentaries/films highlighting “concerns” about our penal system. Everything from issues with prosecutors to First Amendment rights.

Now you’re going to put it all together. What does the above quote mean? Define tyranny. Describe “shield of law and in the name of justice”. Has our idea of “justice” become tyrannical? Why or why not? Provide specific examples from the videos and any other outside sources to support your answer.

Government must create a system that protects and provides justice; to create such a system they must be given power. How can government be constrained in their power when they are given the ultimate authority over someone’s life (literally, they can kill you, take your freedom, and your property – the very things government was created to protect)?
